      2. Add refried beans and cream cheese to a microwave safe bowl. Heat for 45 seconds or until warm enough to stir together.
      3. Add taco seasoning to the bowl and mix.
      4. Spread bean mixture into an 8×8 or 9×9 baking dish then top with salsa, shredded cheese and jalapeño slices. Bake for 25 minutes. Let cool slightly, and serve tortilla chips.

    1. The 5th of May…. Literally. Lol! What it commemorates is the Mexican army’s unlikely victory over the French forces of Napoleon III on May 5, 1862, at the Battle of Puebla. It’s a Mexican feast day to celebrate.
